Carbs: What I believe you are asking is what carbs are high on the glycemic index. Low-glycemic index foods (less than 55) produce a gradual rise in blood sugar levels that's easy on the body. Foods with high-glycemic index numbers (more than 70) make blood sugar levels as well as Insulin levels spike fast. You can determine what foods are high or low at: www. Glycemicindex. Com. ...Read more
Unhealthy: Carbohydrates are the major feeder of fat cells in the body so a high carb diet is likely to lead to weight gain. High carb diets are also generally very low in fats.

I get pain in the upper left quadrant abdominal for the past 8 years everytime I eat high fatty foods or high carbs, ?
Hmm: If you were in my office I'd examine your abdomen, order an ultrasound of your upper abdomen with attention to the pancreas, perhaps order a serum amylase, along with fasting blood sugars, perhaps insulin levels, and a general metabolic panel. If the studies came back normal I'd probably refer you to a GI specialist to make sure I didn't miss something unusual. ...Read more

Nuts may be best bet: Don't know whether you are looking for snack or regular foods. Of course meat would be the obvious answer, but nuts contain very good fats as well as significant protein.

Are there some fruits that have a high enough fiber content, so that the fruit sugar carbs don't get quickly digested (trying to avoid a sugar high)?
Glycemic index: Berries, cherries, apples and pears are all "low glycemic index" forms of fruit. They are also nutrient dense and must still be balanced out with heart healthy protein foods such as nuts. Combining a starch with a higher protein food can slow the uptake of simple sugars and reduce the glycemic load. If you are a diabetic be very careful with portion size. Even low glycemic foods can inc glucose. ...Read more

No: You need to stop reading disinformation websites. Now, people tend to overeat greasy and sugary stuff and that's how they get fat. The public therefore comes to believe that this stuff is "bad for you" and people are ready to believe that is causes other problems as well. In fact, acne & most other skill trouble is mostly unrelated to diet, and balding is hereditary. ...Read more
